Elijah, a father, husband, and United States Army Officer who served for over 30 years, always dreamed of sunny vacations after retirement. So when that day arrived, his wife booked a week-long trip to a new luxury resort. What started as a great vacation took a turn for the worse when Elijah and his wife attended a timeshare presentation.
“The staff told us that owning a timeshare would give us opportunities to vacation anywhere in the world. Then they talked about how great an investment it was and all the savings we would have. It sounded interesting, so we agreed to go to their short presentation.”
Alas, this timeshare presentation was nothing like what Elijah and his wife were expecting. They were no longer speaking with employees of the resort. Now the couple was dealing with ruthless timeshare salespeople.
“From the beginning, I did not appreciate the agents’ aggressive sales plan, and I told them. We felt they were forcing us to listen. It was supposed to be a one-hour presentation, but we stayed there for over three hours. By that time, we would have agreed to anything just to leave.”
As a result, the couple left the presentation as timeshare owners, they were not in the mindset to make such a financial decision.
Despite the rough start, Elijah wanted to give the timeshare a shot. He and his wife were hoping to enjoy some of the vacation destinations.
“After the dust settled, I was still not pleased. About three months in, I tried to plan our next vacation, but there was no availability. I called the resort and had to pay extra to book a trip to some other place. From that point, I knew we had to get out of this timeshare deal.”
Elijah was not receiving the full extent of what the vendors guaranteed.
“Looking back at that first meeting, there were a lot of lies. The staff exaggerated the availability. They also lied about me being able to rent my timeshare to others. On top of that, I was not aware of the annual maintenance and registration fees. After only three months we wanted to get out of our timeshare.”
It would take Elijah nearly a year to find professional assistance from a pioneer in the timeshare exit industry, Wesley Financial Group, LLC (WFG).
“I decided on WFG because they stood out from all the other companies. They were the most informative and professional. Hearing from Mr. McDowell was also convincing. I always felt welcome at WFG.”
After qualifying for their timeshare termination services, Elijah’s timeshare agreement got canceled within eight months. He was relieved of over $11,000 in debt.*
“I was impressed with the results from WFG! It was a pleasure working with their dedicated staff. Now I plan my vacations better and stay away from timeshares. ”
